The changing expectations of the users and their needs drive the way software development companies metamorphose to modify their approaches for bespoke software development. User experiences drive the way systems are developed today adapting to a growing number of trending technologies, seamlessly integrating them to deliver comprehensive solutions.
The Mobile First Approach is at the top of the list for custom software development companies as BYOD and the On-the-Go approach become the new normal. In complete contrast to the traditional ways of creating & deploying software, the contemporary approach is focused on enabling non-technical stake holders to manage the day-to-day demands of the software in the self-service modes without intervention from the IT departments. The focus shifts to the user making intuitive personalized experiences become an integral part of the software designed.
Personalized And Cognitive Systems
Moving one step ahead with personalized user experiences, 2017 consolidates niche technologies to deliver conversational user experiences by bridging the gap between machines & humans with Artificial Intelligence & Machine Intelligence through Chatbots & Virtual Assistants.
On the other hand, continuous data capture through sensor based techniques like beacons and other tightly coupled IoT devices generate actionable insights through Business Intelligence, Analytics and Data Sciences. These intelligent tools prompting the users become an integral part of the software simplifying core processes increasing the competencies exponentially.
Software development becomes a tightly coupled combination of niche technologies & approaches to deliver a flexible and scalable ecosystem driving efficient & optimized processes.
Advantages of Custom Software Development
Getting a customized software developed has its own set of advantages for an enterprise which are more than known.
A Complete Fit to the Requirements
Bespoke solutions are mapped with every user requirement, making them perfectly suitable to the user requirements as well as the specific organizational processes and workflows. These personalized solutions satisfy specific user requirement to better extents reducing the chances of the software itself becoming a misfit. The intricate detailing from the user since conception assures better user satisfaction & acceptance levels.
Cost Effective & Quicker Value Realizations
Custom software is developed with a specific roadmap, with the budget of each milestone clearly defined. Feature additions are normally done only when required keeping the finances under strict control. This results into an accurate, cost effective solution tailor made exactly for the requisites without the burden of extra features or modules which is normal for off-the-shelf solutions.
There are no licenses required and the enterprise can choose to increase the number of users and implementation sites with a scalable approach without the burden of procuring increasing licenses.
The clarity of requirements of the systems being developed, perfect mapping of requirements to the features, an optimized plan for infrastructure as well as resources results in assured and quicker returns on investments giving custom software development the much-required edge over the licensed software.
Easy Integrations to Form Cohesive Systems
Third party or legacy integrations are planned & implemented with ease leading to seamless inclusions and hassle free user experiences to bring in comprehensiveness to the enterprise workflows. This flexibility offered through custom software development is unthinkable for their ready-to-use counterparts.
And, The Bottom Line….
Over the years, the software development models shift from delivering simple aids for day to day functions to being the smart driving force behind critical business flows. Business centric software development turns into smart software development shifting focus of custom software developers to the likes of comprehensive solutions like ERPs & CRMs.
On the other hand, Platform as a Service becomes a more flexible and practical approach making the Cloud become the center of the delivery model for customized software increasing the online reach to clients. In upcoming years, bespoke software are projected to become an integral part of Platform as a Service- PaaS solutions, offering a platform for customers to run and manage their software in the Cloud without the need to provide for the related infrastructure or resources.
